I have never met a doctor, or staff, that are SO caring and compassionate. From the receptionist, to the nurses, to the NP's, all of them really put me at ease. All procedures were explained and all questions were answered. Even being rolled into the OR, they calmed my fears and let me know everything was going to be okay. The surgery was successful and the recovery time was short and pretty uneventful. Follow-up appointments were a breeze and they really make sure to go over every detail.

Office staff did not get back to me despite stating they will. They don't review records as they say they will. I waited 3 weeks for them to review records and they only did it after I called them 3 weeks later, while having me wait on the phone . The records were looked at it flippantly because they missed the whole point why we were referred to them and only saw one aspect of medical history which was cancer history and refused care, missing her entire current needs. It was a waste of time.

Five doctors later he was the only one who actually heard what I said. I was 27 at the time with a new born who I couldn't carry because of the pain. He told me he won't be able to take the away the pain 100% but he"ll do his best. I truly appreciated his honesty!

I needed a partial hysterectomy due to uterine fibroids. He did a wonderful job of removing the uterus laparoscopically. I didn't worry before the surgery because I knew I was in the hands of a very skilled surgeon. I think he knows he's great and has a bit of a doctor's ego; but that's okay, I would recommend him to anyone needing surgery.

Dr. Friedman saw me last year for a Uterine cancer Problem. He was fast and efficient in getting me ready for Surgery for a needed complete Hysterectomy . He was totally professional and encouraging. He has a wonderful sense of humor and bedside manner. The procedure was a sucess, and After the procedure He went far and above, to catch a misdiagnoised slide which could have been disasterous for me , but he caught it had an expert opinion done. I highly recommend Him and his wonderful Staff.
